On August 8, 2018, the CEO Roundtable on Cancer-China (上海拓新健康促进中心) organized and co-hosted an all-day Tobacco Control Workshop with the Shanghai Association on Tobacco Control (SATC) under the auspices of the Office of Shanghai Health Promotion Committee.  The committee were guests of the China Financial Information Center located in the world’s second tallest building, The Shanghai Tower, in the Financial District of Lujiazui.

This was the  first time that all of Shanghai’s different law enforcement agencies jointly attended an open discussion on tobacco control law enforcement. Representatives from virtually every different law enforcement agency participated to including those responsible for tobacco control at Shanghai’s airports, buses and trains as well as those who oversee and conduct cultural and athletic events in this huge metropolis.  It is worth noting that only rarely do municipal government  and legislative officers meet  together with the media.
